Israel Tank Fires Into Syrian Territory Even As It Launches First Air Strike Into Gaza Since November Truce

Tyler Durden's picture


It has been a while since one had to track news of assorted real and false flag attacks involving Iran, Israel, Syria, Turkey, Gaza and various other middle-Eastern countries. That time is again here following news that an Israel tank fired into Syrian territory, supposedly in retaliation for a Syrian mortar hit in the Israeli-occupied Golan heights region (unclear if said mortar was launched by the domestic Al Qaeda-supported rebels, although we are confident the Assad army will surely get the blame as the story is further massaged).

Per Reuters: "Shots were fired at an IDF (Israel Defence Forces) patrol on the border. No injuries or damage was caused. In response, IDF forces returned precise fire at the source and reported a direct hit," the spokeswoman said. Earlier on Tuesday a mortar shell fired during fighting between Syrian forces and rebels landed in the Israeli-controlled territory of the Golan Heights, military sources said. It was unclear whether the gunfire or the shell were deliberately aimed at Israeli forces and the spokeswoman said it was not known whether they were fired by Assad's forces or the rebels."

The Israel military was certainly busy today, with the Syrian retaliation just one of its military offensives today, the other being the first airstrike launched against Gaza by Israel since the bloody conflict in November which nearly resulted in an all out war, even if this particular offensive was not reported by its defense forces.

From Reuters:

Israel launched an airstrike on the Palestinian Gaza Strip on Tuesday, the first such attack since a truce ended an eight-day cross-border war in November, Hamas, the Islamist movement that controls the territory, said.


"Occupation planes bombarded an open area in northern Gaza, there were no wounded," a statement from the Hamas Interior Ministry said. An Israeli military spokeswoman had no immediate comment and said she was checking the report.

It is unclear what the implications of this restart to the middle eastern conflict are as of yet, although it is safe to say that Getco's algos will promptly internalize the data, make it appear to be better than expected, and send the ES much higher, while selling Brent and gold.

Two Short Planks;

Could you maybe go find a Yahoo Board about the mideast? When you flippantly address Russian and Jewish genocide, you sound like a dumb person. ZH is more for smart people.

What does "flippantly" mean????

Yeah, maybe I should, I mean, I don't understand much of what gets posted here anyway...and the comments...*sigh*...it's overwhelming sometimes!

You're an inspiration; you've made me realise that I need to reassess my life in general, you know, have a good hard think about who I am, what I'm doing, and what I really want to do with my life, instead of posting dumb comments on such an astute forum and infinitely worse, wasting the time of so many incredibly busy and important scholars (no offence you cunts).

Maybe I should seek out a forum which discusses something a few pegs lower than the lofty heights of the ZH world, like Astrophysics on a Physics Forum. I could mingle with other shallow, small minded ingrates, and time wasters, exchanging ideas on lame topics such as the wonder of Geodesic Pathways through SpaceTime and incredibly simple shit like how Susskind used information smearing across Event Horizons to refuted Hawkins' Radiation.

Thank you so much, I'm a changed man because of you!

PS. Russia lost 26-27 million and never complain, Jews lost 6 million and complain endlessly. I'm "flippantly" addressing the irony which is obvious to so many, and pushed aside by equally as many.

It was Israelis who gave US missile secrets to China who in turn passed them on to North Korea. So remember which race it is who will ultimately be responsible for nuclear explosions on North America's shores.

I know how at least 80 percent of the clashes there started. In my opinion, more than 80 percent, but let's talk about 80 percent. It went this way: We would send a tractor to plough someplace where it wasn't possible to do anything, in the demilitarized area, and knew in advance that the Syrians would start to shoot. If they didn't shoot, we would tell the tractor to advance farther, until in the end the Syrians would get annoyed and shoot. And then we would use artillery and later the air force also, and that's how it was.

No money in lamps. The Israeli's are close to running 2 big concentration camps with the West Bank and Gaza strip, they are still in the ghetto phase. Sell only inside, huge shortages, no passage without papers, no travel, and no future. If we turned off EBT cards for 2 days, imagine how it would be.

If you study history you will see the Jews were discriminating against the Germans, forming their own racially exclusive charities, and business cabals to gain an unfair advantage, culminating in the seizure of almost all native German assets at the fall of the Weimar Republic. That is why Germans were mad and wanted revenge. The irony is that the Jews tell us the Holocaust should never be forgotten, when they are the people who need to do the remembering. The parallels today are remarkable.

Agree or disagree, FnB is correct. No history text is objective, regardless of how "politically correct" its conclusions are or are not. The views of the author are ALWAYS to be considered when judging the work. I become infuriated when so-called "Austrians" appeal to "history". For fuck's sake, read the first two chapters of "Human Action" or all of "Theory and History".

I find it stunning and depressing that 34 stupid MFs approved of this post.  No wonder the world and most sadly, America, is such a FUd place today.

Please tell me the ethnic group in America that doesn't behave in the exact same exclusionary manner that you accuse German Jews of behaving pre WWII.  Ever been to little Havana in Miami you Fucking moron???  Ever heard of Chinatown?  Chinatown in SanFran, NYC, Chicago, Boston???  Every major city in America.

You fucking people ought to be totally ashamed of yourselves.  None of you could find your ass with both hands and none of you know shit from shinola when it comes to ANY historical fact of the last 200 years.

And you actually have the fucking stupidity to accuse Jews in modern Israel to butchering, gassing, shooting Palestianians.  WTF is a Palestianian anyway???  He's nothing more than an total almagamation and MUTT of a human being - a descendent of the countless ethnic groups and conquerers that have inhabited and pissed on that land since before the time of Alexander the Great.

In fact, every single industry, agricultural or otherwise that the Jews left behind when they gave up Gaza in 2005 was totally FUd and destroyed by the "Palestianians" when they took over from the Jews.  There are over 1 million!!! "Palestianians" and other Arabs of various stripes that live, work and VOTE in Israel.  I bet you couldn't PAY any of them to move to the shit-hole that is Gaza, the West Bank or any other piece of shit, truly intolerent, hell-hole, fucked-up Muslim country in the entire world.

Go ahead, flame away now, you brainless, Jew Hating, sons-of-bitches.  You're in good company - you and Barack Hussein Obama...Jew hating, lying propaganists - each and every one of you!
